Springtime Baroque Mini

Hi everyone, i wanted to share my first mini with you! i had so much fun that i will definitely be making many more...hehe. For the mini itself i used the Tim Holtz "Baroque" die and medium weight chipboard. For the theme i used the Graphic 45 paper line "Once Upon a Springtime". Using my distress crackle paint "Tattered Rose" i faded from the left to the right. Once the paint was dried i heavily inked over it with "Forest Moss", then took a damp paper towel and wiped the ink off leaving it in the cracks. I then went over the paint again with a Lindy's mica powder in the color "Holly Berry Red Orange".
I used some recollection flowers and also painted them with a Lindy's mica powder in the color "Holly Berry Red Orange". For the closure i used some gorgeous beaded dangle trim...just love this stuff. i Covered the ribbon part with velvet scroll trim that i also sell in my shop. then placed a flower where the velcro is. 

On this page i used allot of Lindy's in the color of "Daybreak Ruby Russet". I painted the butterflies, the flowers in the paper pattern and a prima flower along with some i am roses flower petals, then attached the flower to an accordion fold out.
On this page i painted some roses from i am roses with a Lindy's mica powder in the color "Daybreak Ruby Russet".
     I used white lace on both pages that was painted using a Mica Powder mixture in the colors Sunset Red Red and Mountain LavenderOn the left, I painted a recollections flower with a Lindy's mica powder in the color "Holly Berry Red Orange". 
I sprayed both the tags with Lindy's Moon Shadow Mist in the color "Phantom Fuchsia"
I used "tea dye" distress crackle paint around the edge. Then painted a mixture of mica powders in the colors "Crimson Red gold" and "Ghostly Gargoyle White". I got the beatutiful rose trim from Becca...thanks sweetie! I sprayed it with Moon Shadow Mist in the color "Phantom Fuchsia" For the binding i used a gorgeous white and pearl cord and accented with cordinating fibers. You can get both the fibers and the cord in my shop!
